Energy.......what is it and where does it come from???

Think about the definition of energy:  Vigor or power in action; Capacity for action or accomplishment; The work a physical system is capable of doing when changing from one state to another...
When was the last time you felt energized?  Full of vigor and vitality?  Ready for action?  Ready to accomplish something important?
Well, if it's been a while, then perhaps you need an energy break!
Sit at your desk, close your eyes, take some deep breaths, and relax your entire body from head to toe.  Allow yourself to completely relax and let go of the tension you have been feeling...
Squeeze your hands together and release them five times in succession.  Point your toes toward your knees and then, release them five times.  Rotate your feet in circles five times. Let your neck relax by looking down for 5 seconds, to the right side for 5 seconds, to the left for 5 seconds and looking up for 5 seconds.  Now, stand up and reach for the stars - that's it!  Reach your arms up above your head 5 times.  Shake your shoulders, arms and hands.  Now, sit back down and see if you don't have a bit more energy than you did 5 minutes ago!!!
Do this exercise OFTEN!!!  Allow your body the time to re-energize itself by taking a short break for YOU!
Share these ideas with your co-workers or team!  Then, enjoy the rest of your day!!!
